It was packaged well. I am very happy how quiet and balanced I feel on it. I have been inactive for a year and was pleased to feel my calves start to get strong within weeks. I enjoy the instructors giving proper alignment for core. This is a worth while investment. So glad you thought of the design. I popped off one of the bands by mistake today and had no problem putting it back on. Im telling everyone but I can see on their faces they are apprehensive. My lymphatic system thanks you. Im 62 and plan on taking it as far as I can! :)
This is my second bellicon rebounder. The first one was a discontinued model that I purchased in 2010. Loved it tremendously. I let my sister borrow it recently. Since she convinced me that she is and will continue using it, I went ahead and let her keep it. After exploring the updated rebounder market, I purchased the more expensive bellicon yet again. And I am glad I did!
What I love - the same great quality, ability to customize, folding legs, the fun factor from both its looks and incredible bounce. Now, this thing seems very pricey - but when you consider the cost of gym equipment in general, in pieces, in sets, or as a large equipment purchase, and the fact that this piece of equipment can get a lot of the same results as these other options (muscle and bone strengthening, lymphatic system support, cardiovascular benefits, balance and coordination, customizable workouts, etc..) and its low impact to joints, the price is not out of line at all.
This (and a new juicer) is the absolute best purchase I have made in 2015 and try to convince others to do the same. You will not regret the purchase.
I've had my Bellicon for about 2 years now and it's truly one of the only workouts that I enjoy.
Whether I simply do a health bounce while watching TV or put on my favorite music and do a heart pounding aerobic workout, it's never a workout I dread. With a history of lymphoma in my family, the main reason I bounce is too work my lymphatic system, so the fact that it also several other amazing benefits is a bonus.
In the past I've had the metal spring bouncers which are like jumping on concrete compared to the Bellicon. I highly recommend the Bellicon!!
